Wakulla Springs State Park
There are many activities available at Wakulla Springs State Park.
Swim in the Springs - One of the favorite activities is the swimming area, with its 2 story tower and two sunbathing platfoorms amid clear, cool spring waters.
Walking trails abound with over 10 miles of wandering trails through hardwood hammocks, spring floodplains, with a variety of foliage and champion trees, some found only here in their original grandeur. You can view the Sally Ward Spring Run from a foot bridge, and see if you can spot a manatee.
River Boat Tour The River Boat Tour is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. The 45 minute boat tour of the spring and downriver ecosystem is a bird lovers paradise, with a multitude of bird species seen on virtually every trip.
